Madrid - The Spanish league, which had already announced a domestic television deal worth a minimum €2.65 billion, struck another agreement Thursday for €300m.

Orange-Vodafone agreed the fee for one of the remaining packages available for the next three years, the league announced.

In Wednesday's deal, it was revealed that a subsidiary of telecommunications giant Telefonica, Movistar, will have first choice of one match from each round of fixtures for €250m a season.

Meanwhile, multimedia communications group Mediapro have the rights to eight other La Liga games each weekend for €633m a season.

The figures are well short of the €5.1 billion three-deal agreed by the Premier League for domestic TV rights in February.
